Held just before the world’s largest Italian wine fair, the event is now in its fourth edition. 5StarWines is a three-day tasting that turns the spotlight on all the wineries that invest in improving their products. During the event, a jury of highly qualified industry professionals taste and rate the participating wines using a 1/100 scale. In the third edition, more than 3,100 bottles took part in the selection process, of which, 676 were selected and thereafter included in the 5StarWines – the Book guide.
